Woman from China Arrives at NJ Newark Airport - QUARANTINED
5 Comments

For the first time, a person in New Jersey has been placed into mandatory quarantine over the threat of the coronavirus, the state health department confirmed Wednesday morning.

The woman — who is not a New Jersey resident — flew from Hubei, China to Newark Liberty International Airport on Tuesday, the department said.

The woman did not show any symptoms of the virus, the department said. But because she was in Hubei — the Chinese province where the virus originated — as of Tuesday, the woman was ordered into a mandatory 14-day quarantine, the department said.

The woman was taken to an undisclosed location in Essex County, where the New Jersey Department of Health will monitor her for symptoms the next 14 days.

“The risk of novel coronavirus transmission in New Jersey residents remains low,” said Nicole Kirgan, a spokeswoman for the department.

New Jersey has no confirmed cases of coronavirus.

The woman landed in Newark on United Flight 87 around 6 p.m. Tuesday, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

The state also created a website and a hotline — 1-800-222-1222 — to answer questions about the virus.

    I hope the radio broadcast will be recorded for repeat listening or for those who aren't able to listen to the live broadcast.

        you have to download an app. I have an Android phone and use an app called CustomRadioPlayer, but there are others. Don't know what iPhone use. Perhaps ther is a built-in way, but don't know of it.

    Why the hell is ANYONE from China still being allowed into the country? They could reduce the risk if nothing else by a ban on all flights from China until this thing has run its course.

      Makes one wonder doesn't it........ My thoughts are they either know this isn't going to affect us here that bad or this is part of a plan to reduce global population by a bunch.
